Am I a sustainable eater?

We have discussed several problems that we are facing in this industry including food waste and hunger. We all know the saying a better world starts with yourself, so I wanted to see how much of a sustainable eater I am and see where there is still room for improvement. After some research, I came across a quiz from National Geographic; the ‘Green Guide Sustainable Food Quiz’. – Sounded good to me!

I’m going to change my plastic containers for storing my cheese for some glass ones. Want to know why? Take the quiz for yourself and learn how you can become more sustainable. Click here

Numerous people assume that eating healthy and sustainable goes together with spending more money, which does not have to be true! Sustainable eating on a budget – sounds like music to my student ears!

According to ecospree these are some tips to keep in mind;

  1. Limit processed foods
  2. Eat seasonal food
  3. Eat Locally
  4. Make your own
  5. Buy in bulk
  6. Grow your own food
  7. Eat out less
  8. Eat less meat
  9. Eat ‘ugly’ fruit and veggies

Do you have other tips on how to eat more sustainable and at the same time watch your spending? Please share!
